Y2 – Day 297 – Pomegranates

Picture taken by J, the dog rescuer, on one of our walks.

There are 14 different cultivars of pomegranates and all can be grown in our arid/hot, cool winter area.  They are drought tolerant, once established, but need regular watering to blossom and fruit.  Although their shells are tough and leathery, once scored and opened, ruby, jewel – like sacs of sweet tart juice can be devoured.  The gems can also be strewn atop a salad or dessert for drama !
